              -e      Exit  immediately  if a pipeline (which may consist of a
                      single simple command), a list, or  a  compound  command
                      (see SHELL GRAMMAR above), exits with a non-zero status.
                      The shell does not exit if the  command  that  fails  is
                      part  of  the command list immediately following a while
                      or until keyword, part of the test following the  if  or
                      elif  reserved  words, part of any command executed in a
                      && or || list except the command following the final  &&
                      or ||, any command in a pipeline but the last, or if the
                      command's return value is being inverted with !.
